Yup, because they are allowed to claim the difference as a loss and be compensated with our tax dollars. There is NO incentive for banks to do a short sale in today's market. It's better for them to claim a loss on the investment than it is to cash out a token gem like that at a loss that they can't claim on a monthly basis.

Well I'm under contract for the house I mentioned a few posts above. It ended up with some investors and we worked a deal to sell it as-is so I could afford it.

If all goes well I should close on it in 30 days and I'll have just under a half acre with a 2100 sq ft house and a 20 x 30 shop in back. The shop is pre-wired for 220 and 110 in at least a dozen places and has tons of lights. Even the attic is wired for lights. Fully insulated walls, ceiling, garage door too.

Here's the detached workshop. The trash hadn't been cleaned up yet from the renters who moved out. The house has a 2-car garage with the option to convert the bonus room to a third garage later.



More pics taken the day after the renters moved:

Well I finaly got the ball rolling.
I met with my contractor yesterday, we agreed on price and options. Pending cash transfer they promised me that I would have my building complete 30 days after the building permit was issued. The agent anticipated at least 2-3 weeks for the permit so that puts me into November.

Well I lined up my ducks last night made a few phone calls, drew my to scale and in depth site plan and completed the application. I went to the secratarys office this morning ready for bear. Got down to business and she was so impressed with my preparedness I was issued a permit on the spot! I was also able to manage a varience from 25 to 15 feet of the property line pending the submission of a letter and board approveal (some of those ducks I mentioned). It pays to Volunteer your time to the community.

Now I hope that my pole barn company wasn't counting on that permit turnaround time.

Crew starts digging holes on Monday!
Materials delivered on Tuesday and they will be finished on Thursday. Long time wait but it's here now, I just cut down a dying 50' ash tree that I didn't want to fall on my new baby and I also planted the white flag seeds this morning.

Final dimensions are: 40x60x14 my youngest just landed a job with a major national trucking co. so that was the swing vote for the 14' wall.

Pix to be posted as work progresses.

14' is the right height for a normal car or pickup on a lift so there's that too.

What does this mean?



Sounds familiar with precutting the tree. I had to take down a couple big ones that might have fallen on my barn once it was up. Mine barn was constructed at the beginning of winter. They poured the concrete inside on January 8, 2008.

Kevin the white flags are for the construction crew. They mark the location of the building.

From these flags a building will grow!smiling smiley

Let the money bleed. Got delivery @07:10 hrs. Off load took maybe 50 mins.
Erection begins tomorrow and NOAA said a 90% chance of rain and some snow flurries possible at higher elevations, were at 1500' so my luck dictates snow!

One of the delivery driver a young lad was a sportsman racer and asked what was under the car cover. I told him it was my "66" Corvair Corsa he knew that Chevrolet made em but that was about all, he's been schooled and was excited to hear about my V-8 car.

Any concrete guys out there want to advise me on depth and load. The base up here is shale. There may be an occasional Freightliner and maybe a fire truck in the barn.

Keep you all posted.

Crew arrived @ 08:45 And got right to work. Batter boards went up over my white flags and I was within 4" of square, hole locations were marked and the auger dug in. These guys kids actualy were pretty good and I enjoyed watching them.

It was pretty cool watching the kid stradle the ridge as he nailed the trusses. Almost no imput from me with the exception of one safety issue, as the fork operator was lifting the trusses I had to advise about the hot power line he came close to.
8 trusses remain as the crew knocked off due to rain and high wind. More pix tom.

The Corsa (under the cover) looks on to see it's new home. I'm already thinking it's too small I've. got too much stuff.
